June 2012 MyGlam Bag


The June MyGlam is already one of my favorites from the bags I received.  I am thrilled with contents and the sample sizes. Two products were full sized which is what MyGlam has been lacking lately. I am enjoying each product including the bag itself. The bag is perfect for a night out at the bar which fits the theme perfectly in my opinion. The bag is very glittery and does shed but I am going to research some way to prevent that such as a waterproof spray or something similar. All the products are great for summer and classic looks so that is another positive note about this months bag. 

I've been subbed from February to June and this is the second bag I feel that was actually worth it, the first one being April's. You're now probably thinking if that's how you feel why are still subscribed? Well I will have a post for that later because after I got my bag I did cancel my subscription. So on with this review:

June's Theme is "Out All Night"



Swatches of every Product in the bag:


Philosophy Take a Deep Breath Oil-Free Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream Moisturizer:  
(swatch is the second from the top)


I am totally loving this moisturizer. I have never tried a gel cream moisturizer and I was a bit skeptical, but this is working out great for me. It is so light weight and perfect for summer because of that. I have combo-oily skin and this just seems to be perfect because it moisturizes the spots needed and lays off the spots not needed, evening out my skin. 

I requested a sample of this via Philosophy's Facebook and I am receiving same size as the one I received here: .4 l oz. The full size is 2 oz retailing for $34 which is a bit out of my price range but with some saving, it can be purchased. My sample has already lasted 2 weeks, so the plus side is that the full size will last a long time. 

Insert /Card with a brief description of this gel and a special offer for free shipping with no minimum amount using promo code: fresh5 or myglamjune (offer valid thru 7/15/12)



NYX Round Lipstick in Georgia:
(third swatch)


I am not much of a lipstick wearing type of gal  (except for nude colors) but I like this for a nice classic simple look. It is a bit frosty in color but its such a pretty pink to not wear. I have worn this out a few times and I really enjoy the color on myself especially for my tan skin because it just *pops*. It does last long, and is super smooth when applying. I really like this and am intrigued to try more colors, specifically a nude color. This is a full size lipstick and it retails for $4.00.

Living Proof Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream:
(first swatch)


 This smells absolutely divine. I have tried this a few times and it came just in time for the humid weather we've been having. This product does last all day long leaving its wonderful smell on my hair. So there are no complaints here. I hate frizz and usually use John Frieda Frizz Ease Spray because it is so affordable and available at Walmart, CVS, etc. I probably will not purchase this because the only pro over the John Frieda Spray is that is smells so amazing. The sample I received is 2 fl oz. The full sizes are: 2 fl oz for $15, 4 fl oz for $26, 8 fl oz for $36

Insert/Card with an exclusive trail kit at $35 instead of $45, free shipping, and a free sample at checkout only at www.livingproof.com/myglam (offer valid thru 7/7/12)



Marbella Permanent Eyeliner Pen:
(last swatch)


Okay right off the bat, I noticed this said "Don't use with lenses." with no other explanation. I was hesitant since I wear contacts and rarely wear my glasses. I want to know the harm this can cause and have looked all over the web and can't seem to find an answer, so I risked it an wore it anyhow.

I *love* this eyeliner. I wear liquid eyeliner every day and this is now my holy grail liquid liner. It is pigmented perfectly for me, which is ironic since so many ladies said theirs was not. They even has swatches with proof. They really had to layer on the color. That is one con because you never know If you're going to get a a normal one if you purchase this again. The pros for this are that it really last all day and all night. I sometimes forget to take my makeup off at night and with this, it was almost in tact the next morning. Also, it didn;t take harsh c=scrubbing to remove. My Nuetrogena Makeup Remover worked just fine. Another pro is that it is super easy to use. I sometime struggle with cat eyes but this make is so much simple. I will be purchasing another when needed. (I'm not a hoarder and do not need another one at the moment, so yes when needed)

Conclusion/Cancellation:
So that was the amazing June 2012 Myglam. I truly loved each product and am planning to buy a few full products when these run out. This bag is worth well over $30 and two full sized products were included. Although this was great month I did unsubscribe because there has not been any consistency of product sizes or products that were of quality each month. I like that I can be introduced to new brands/products but some months the products were almost knock off or from some company that is living under a rock and just decided to peak up for the MyGlam Bag. I will have a post later on my reasons for cancelling.

What did you think of this month's bag? Am I crazy for cancelling?

Thanks for reading :-)
